They were a very nice couple and they too were going to the concert as part of a romantic journey to Tuscany.
Then because we knew we had to walk down to the Theatre in the fields, at about 7.45 we decided to make our way towards the arena. We each had our sticks, thank goodness, as it turned out. We took the first kilometre slowly as we had plenty of time. However, at the beginning of the downward slope, we saw in front of us a mass of people who were hardly moving . Our walk slowed down, and then came to a halt. We were nowhere near the arena, and all we could see stretching out in front were people! We joined this queue, and in a very short time there were people behind us, and we soon discovered this queue was stretching back nearly all the way to Lajatico. There were older people than us, and there were more infirm people than us, but no help was given to them at all , although we had read that a bus would be at the top of this downward slope to help those with problems. This must be an â€˜Italianâ€™ bus!
